  1. Wedding Wednesday is a new feature on Retro-Reporter that I've wanted to introduce for a while. Sometimes it will be about my own wedding, but most of the time I'll be focusing on other vintage wedding ideas from around the net and especially Edmonton.

    This weekend at Fort Edmonton Park, you can experience the magic of weddings throughout history - plus a few perks.

    I was actually invited by Fort Edmonton Park to cover this event before I was engaged - lucky for me that the timing is impeccible. All my stars must be aligne

    The calendar is in full here, but some events I'm looking forward to include Asking Permission to Wed (Ian missed the memo on that one), Victorian Bachelor Party (no Pilsner &peelers here, I bet) and the Jazz Age Wedding (the couple are "the thoroughly modern Penelope Elizabeth Halcombe and Reginald Wesley Haldane, a returned veteran from the Great War who takes his jazz hot and his prohibition on the rocks!")

    The most wonderful part of the weekend will be the vow renewal ceremony, where couples can declare their love for one another. How sweet! Check out Fort Edmonton Park's Facebook page this week

    And also on for this weekend is a Romance Package at Hotel Selkirk, which includes an overnight stay, wine, dinner for two, breakfast for two, admission and a photo session at Ernest Brown Photography Studio (including a free photo!).

    Ian and I will be attending the event, so even if you can't make it out (or don't live in Edmonton!) I will have a re-cap for next week's wedding post. Even if you're not having an 100% "authentic vintage" wedding, or aren't having one in the Park, I hope to have some inspiration for you.

    PS - thank you to everyone who has congratulated us on our engagement. We're overwhelmed with the love!

      I love all of your previous blog posts, so I know I'm definitely going to enjoy reading about your Wedding Wednesdays! I love weddings, and I love love retro!! Can't wait.

    2. Enchantingly lovely idea for a new recurring post series! I'm a die-hard romantic, and while happily married for many years, always adore anything wedding related - all the more so if vintage is involved! :)

    7. I had my wedding here back in May last year and I felt like it was a perfect day for us! Plus all of us dressed up only added to the entire ambience.

      I suggest you also conduct a taste-test. It's one of the yummiest parts of your wedding preparations, plus you're making your guests are getting only the best. Your groom-to-be's going to love this too!
